to win a majority of the popular vote twice. mitt romney has to be asking himself, giving the magnitude of the president's problems and the great numbers of americans who believe the country was headed in the wrong direction, "how did i lose?" as the republican national convention, a vermont couple took the stage to describe how mitt romney helped their terminally ill son settle his affairs, but their story never meant it to tv. instead, the voters saw this. >> what do you want me to tell romney? i cannot tell him to do that. [laughter] >> that is a symptom of what went wrong in the campaign, and yet, as we observe here, we noted that the president was vulnerable at so many levels. the economic recovery moving at a snail's pace. there was great opposition to the affordable care act, obamacare, if you will. he bombed in the first debate. what then was the key to the obama victory? >> the obama campaign was a brilliant, disciplined campaign. it had a very narrow route to victory, and it proceeded to follow it with incredible discipline and a sense of direction, and they raced to a differe
. >> well, if you don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee. >> if men are from mars and women are from venus? is mitt romney from jupiter? >> planned parenthood, going to get rid of that. >> i love you women. >> back in my days, they used bare aspirin. >> if it is legitimate rape, the body shuts down. >> history will be made at the supreme court. >> the individual mandate is constitutional. >> this is the decision, a fascinating rape. >> i know the debate. >> the republicans thought they were going to win. >> i think roberts found the answer. >> when we look back, we'll be better off. >> governor romney is caught on tape. >> the shocking tape from romney. >> it is not elegantly stated, let me put it that way, speaking off the cuff. >> in his words, nearly half the country will never take personal responsibility for their lives. >> it is not elegantly stated. >> if i were a rich man ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ dumb, dumb. >> people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches. >> the presidential candidates, battening down the hatches. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm goin
on to the general election. mitt romney summed up the g oor gop primary season. we had 20 republican debates. that was absolutely nuts. and nen in the august, 2011 debate, when the candidates assembled on stage showed their intransigence on the issue of raising taxes. watch him go to work here. let's listen. >> i'm going to ask a question to everyone here on the stage. say you had a deal, a real spending cuts deal. 10 to 1, as byru byron said. speaker, you're already shaking your head. but who, on this stage, would walk away from that deal? you feel so strongly about not raisining tax, you'd walk away the 10 to 1 deal. >> another highlights and low lights of the gop primary michael steel. that was a scene where you come up from the roots of the republican party. was that a good dare or a bad day for the republicans. >> i think it was a bad day. i think he recognized after the fact that that was a definitive moment where he could have carved out a new space on that stage and probably one a campaign free of that package. >> it wouldn't have looked very good after that e lexz. >> right: i'm jus
? is it john boehner? was it mitt romney? don't bet on it. the real boss is a man other woman in the back row of a tea party meeting. the angry one who stands up and scalds him. it's that angry voice rising up from the back of the room that haunts the tea party-backed republican. do they want to be the person who voted with the party leadership? or, worse yet, the democratic president? or do they want to vote against all of that? no taxes? no deals, no compromises. no nothing. period. this is the wall that those of the tea party have raised up. they can't vote for what they campaigned against, spending money on government. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> tonight, in new york city, welcome to "politics nation" second annual revvie awards. it's the best and the worst in politics, 2012. look, all the big stars are on the red carpet. donald trump is in the unreality show category. paul ryan's pumped and ready to go. what's with the hat there? >> and what's an awards show without this guy. he survived a really rough y
is the obama campaign's decision to hammer mitt romney as an out-of-touch politicalcrat from almost the very beginning. everyone was yelling from the beginning why are you doing this? when the 47% video was released, it made a powerful video even more powerful because it confirmed everything that the obama campaign had been saying about the republican nominee from moment one. >> crystal? >> three words. please proceed, governor. the second debate after the president had a lackluster performance. in the second debate, he really came out swinging and mitt romney thought he had him on the ropes with this benghazi nonsense. the president braille yantly just let him -- please proceed, governor. go ahead. what are you going to say? and not only was that a great, bril yant move in that moment a and won the second debate right there. but it was em blematic of how he just had to let mitt romney talk. say what he thought about americans. say what his plans were for the country and it was so objectionable to american people that they definitely wanted to go in a different direction. >> so please procee
about are here right now. i mean, this amazing statistic is that mitt romney won the same percentage of the white vote as george herbert walker bush did in 1988 when he won 436 electoral votes. i mean, that's just stunning. and it's an example of how the country has changed. and it's not just a demographic change. there's a cultural change. and i think obama representeds a cultural shift in terms of how we think about politics, how we think about government, how we think about each other. >> there is a cultural shift, and jon meacham, i thought it was very telling what newt gingrich said about the republican party's challenges. he said they either wake up to the realities that are facing them. this election was much worse for them than they expected, or there will be young voters who will be obama democrats for the next 40 years. this could be a watershed election if the republicans don't respond in the correct way. >> one of the interesting things -- and i wonder if rick in thinking all this out, if what you all made of this -- is, you know, fdr had this legacy. you still had people
this would not be happening? mitt romney had won in november. right, because when g.o.p. is in the white house, deficits don't matter. can you tell us a little bit about the philosophies of the two candidates? well now, the president and the ex-candidate. will the situation be that much different if there was a different man in the white house? guest: well, look, it's an interesting question. it is certainly true that tax policy was one of the key sort of issues in the last election. and actually, the debate that we're having if it sounds familiar, it's because we've had it several times before. it was really a similar debate to what we had in 2008. we had the same debate in 2010. we had a similar debate in 2011 when we were dealing with the debt ceiling issue the first time around. and we dealt it with it in the last election. and the differences have always been that president obama has maintained that tax cuts should be allowed to expire for people making more than $250,000. mitt romney called for extending all the tax cuts fully. and making other changes to the tax code. but, you kno
to give you a look back right now at a year on "now." >> can mitt romney self deport himself into the oval office? >> carl rove thinks he's conspireing with the easter bunny. >> is the republican party fired up and ready to go? >> wednesday, june 14th. wednesday, december 7th. >> and this is "now." >> this year the grand old party gifted us the grand old clown car. time to bring in steady eddie, aka rick santorum. seems to be in the throws of a tantorum. i say hot garbage. mitt romney, the kaiser of the republican party. message to newt gingrich, no hold's bar. that was my addendum. the angry teddy bear, newt gingrich. the angry teddy bear, the angry attack muffin. i noticed you liked to call him that as well. >> i stole that from you. >> you are the creator of the angry teddy bear comparison with newt gingrich. >> for that, i expect to be charging more higher rates in the coming months. >> as the primaries produce new names, so did our show. >> the effortlessly elegant jonathan capehart. eternally buzzy ben smith. ari melber. steve. queen bee and managing editor of the sunday morning hims
pragmatic republicans to win the gop presidential nomination mitt romney had to embrace a far-right tea-party friendly agenda pap that agenda is arguably part of why he lost which speaks to where the tea party's popularity is with the population. "the washington post" abc news poll, the majority of americans, 53%, said. republican party is now too conservative. after the election, even sheldon addleson who has spent millions bank rolling tea party candidates described himself as a social liberal. a retiring republican congressman from ohio described the tea party's rigid opposition to raising taxes on the wealthy this way. the continuing dumbing down of the republican party he said last week. we're going to be seen mother and more as a bunch of extremists, can't even get the majority of our own people to support policies we're putting forward. there's a lot to think about and talk about here. i guess i felt, personally on the side of -- the tea party movement, i don't know how many rallies there are. i think in some very important ways, the tea party has won the tea party mindset sort o
had, you know, than what happens with mitt romney. comment? >> first of all i'm delighted you're an avid abc news watcher. listen, people have asked me about where the news is heading and what's happening. it's changing. going back to your contact book, seeing how much it changed while walter cronkite was there. a change certainly very much and it will continue to change and evolve. i continue to watch abc news, not so much as a user, but you watch and there's always material that i think as you scrape it is also things that are different than would've been when i was there. something i learned abc news is if you want more substantive, whatever you want more of, you hold it within your power to influence the. because no matter who the journalist, no matter how they all react to the audience. they do care. there is great news reporting being done there is outlets, electronically whether it is online or tv or radio, great news reporting being done right now. if you want more of that, then you need to find it and spending time and energy following it. because the reverse is also
for republicans this past election when this happened. >> the romney campaign was wrong. they thought they were going to win. if you talk to them at 5:00 on election day they would have told he they honestly believed they were going to win. i also think that -- the country is going to vote to be in a different position and i think we have got to understand that -- >> is that a ring tone? what ring tone was that? >> i have two ring tones. i have dancing queen is my general ring tone for most people and then my wife's ring tone is super trooper. we stay with abba all the way through. >> well, that was, in fact, dancing queen. anyway, it's not the first time abb a has caused newt to pause from politics. >> immediately allow for implementation that day of the pipeline. i had to cut off my son. that was dancing queen. i didn't have to answer it. if it's super trooper, it's my wife, i have to answer. i should have turned the phone off. >>. >>> next, what money can't buy. the sunlight foundation is out with a list of congressional candidates actually who spent more than $35 per vote in the 2012 electi
campaigning in 2012. the negative campaigning has been to attack, attack and attack mitt romney for bain capital, for being a plutocrat, for for being rich, for being out of touch. all these things that they are accusing rightly or wrongly mitt romney for. so a very negative campaign and a very unusual one or for david axlerod to run. >> host: you write, edward klein, that what is invariably true about our president is that the most successful ones grow in office. can the same be said of barack obama? has he learned from his mistakes? the answer to these questions will strike many readers of this book as all too clear. i can just hear them chanting in unison: no, no, no. >> guest: well, look at john f. kennedy who came to the oval office truly unprepared to be president and made many mistakes in the first, first year or more including the bay of pigs and other mistakes that he made. it is now generally conceded that kennedy by the time he was assassinated had grown in office considerably and understood how to deal with the military, how to deal with congress, how to deal with, um, confli
romney kept saying this country could be on the road to be more like greece if we did not get our arms around it. the unemployment rate remains high. are you optimistic in the short term about our country's future. >> it is hard to be. i tried to be. if we can get this resolved, this fiscal cliff situation, and have a pathway to seeing the deficit be reduced, cannot do it overnight, if we can see there is a path, a trajectory of slowing down the growth of spending to the point you can see the deficit will ultimately go away over a reasonable time, people will start investing again, hiring again, and i spoke to a business group yesterday and asked if they would hire just because they get a tax credit for hiring people. they said no. if you see the deficit will go away and there is hope we are on the right path to fiscal sanity, will you then hired? yes. we will have markets for our products and services and then we will need more people. we are stuck right now because all we have done for a year and a half was kick the can down the road. i voted against the act a year- and-a-half ago be
